Book Reviews

"Those in general, contact lens, and anterior segment practices may find the first half of the book a great addition to their shelves for an up-to-date reference on ocular surface conditions commonly presenting in practice. The second half of the book is well positioned for corneal surgeons or those training in that field. The photos and diagrams are excellent - better than most atlas types of books I have seen."
